In response to Re: acrylic tub and plumber's putty
: What should be used to seal the drain strainer to an acrylic tub? I have read and was told to use plumber's putty, but Oatey brand plumber's putty says NOT to use it with plastics and to instead use silicon sealant. Silicon sealant doesn't seem like it would be enough. Is there a putty to use on acrylic tubs or does a silicon caulk work? Many thanks.

Linda, Plumbers putty is an excellant sealer for steel tubs and cast iron tubs. It also has oil in it that will seep into the acrylic around the drain causeing a brown ring. I use sylicone on all acrylic tubs,cultured marble and plastic lavs. silicone will work and no stains. Just my opinion. Dale Peck LMP 37yrs
